For Wednesday

Monday audio. Immunity Commentaries due next Monday.

What was the second part of Monell's interpretation of municipal liability and why? What is the argument (later offered in dissent in Bryan County) that the Court's interpretation with respect to respondeat superior is wrong? What are the four ways to establish municipal liability and what is the necessary showing for the plaintiff as to each? Be sure to prepare the Puzzles in this section.

Go on the Supervisory Liability, but only read Iqbal, Dodds, and § 4.14 in Understanding. We are going to split that section up a bit. We will save McMillian and § 4.15 for later.
